when it takes eight ingredients to love like God

We're lying in the bed and Maxster says this - hands flying around counting on his fingers -

Mommy, God told me how to love like him.
 
He did.  How?
 
It takes vese ingredients.  Big hope, little hope, big faif, little faif, big love, little love -
 
Wait.  If you're going to love like God why are you saying little love?  God has only big, big, love.
 
No, he has just big love.  But ven when you add a little love wiv it and mix it up it makes it even bigger.  Get it, Mommy?
 
I say Got it as I watch him stir and demonstrate with lots of hand gestures.
 
So, big love and little love, big hope, little hope, big faif, little faif, and ven iron and Jesus.  Ven you smash it all togever.  I'm not sure why the iron but I vink you pobably need it.


 
 
So, He supplies all the big love and all we need to add to it is just a little - just a little love.  World, all the work has been done, all we need is just a little love - just a littleWe can do that, can't we?
 

He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them.  And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 18:2-4

The iron is to make us stronger at just the right time when we need it. That's what I think anyway.
